Bethany junior Caroline Cartmel is one of three high school musicians from Elkhart County chosen to participate in the 2019 Indiana All-State Orchestra. Students selected for this prestigious honor went through a vigorous audition process with a record number of applicants from across the state. Caroline plays viola.

Selected participants have the opportunity to spend two days in an intensive rehearsal experience, working with a nationally renowned clinician before performing as part of the Indiana Music Education Association’s Professional Development Conference, Jan. 17-19. This annual event is organized by the Indiana Chapter of the American String Teachers Association.
